We were doing a campus visit at UW and stayed several nights. I was concerned from the reviews that the construction would keep us up, but there was no nighttime work while we were there. We were in a corner room that was quite large. It was an exceptionally clean and well appointed, modern room. The location near the university... More

The reviews were everything they promised - polite, gracious staff eager to accommodate and please guests. The beds were super comfortable (My son did not want to leave and come home!)

Nice, quiet, clean hotel with friendly staff. Simple, but good breakfast. Super comfy beds and bedding. Nice to have the individual coffee pods in the room. My only complaint is having to pay for parking in the hotel parking lot.
